Queen Mary Commercial Awareness Society was founded with the purpose of elevating STEM, law, and non-law students' understanding of current affairs and the effects on the dynamic legal and commercial sectors.
At QMCAS, we are proud to have a diverse executive committee that consists of 26 members. As the most followed QMUL law society on Instagram and Twitter, our platforms allow us to reach a wide range of students with 40% of our members being from non-law and STEM backgrounds.
QMCAS is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion across the campus. Our D&I officer is a 4th year BAME student working closely for our upcoming D&I events and initiatives in collaboration with other societies across campus.
